Coaster’s second Community Records release is titled “Deuces” and it’s another delirious barrage of urgent Chicagoan indie punk! “Burn” opens the album like a Roman candle fight, projecting fiery garage rock hooks and giddy pop rhythm to an ironically vulnerable commentary that altogether recalls some more spirited moments from Cap’n Jazz and Jack White. The following three tracks see Coaster’s demonstrated inclination to intensify tempered with melancholic dips while their loving dedication to rock hooks prevents any listener whiplash and illustrates an emotionality that is, although shaky, balanced and accessible. In this, Coaster find immediate kinship in fellow Chicago bands Ratboys, both unabashedly employing rockism to make memorable and reflective indie, and Dowsing, both processing ongoing emo/pop punk fashion and extracting impactful, energetically earnest rock. Deuces (co-release with Sooper Records) offers compressed explication of the sound found earlier in 2015 on Slow Jams and, on cassette, makes chatty, playful indie rock suitably portable for the listener’s own frantic days.
